Rated 5 out of 5 by HeatherS A great starter set!
I received a free sample of the Essentials Gift Set to review. Overall I think this is a great set, providing the basics for beginning bottle feeding. I like that it includes two sizes of bottles as well as two different types of nipples and bottle covers. As every baby is different, a bonus would be for the set to include faster flow nipples as well, but even having the first two sizes is helpful. I also really like that a bottle brush is included - this is a helpful accessory. The two enclosed pacifiers are not a type that our infant daughter likes to use, so we did not try themy or use them. As we only use bottles occasionally, having two of both sizes is sufficient for our needs. If we utilized bottles more frequently, I can see needing to have more than just two of both sizes. However, this is just the essentials set, so two of each bottle to start with is fine. The microwave sterilizer is easy to use and very fast. I appreciate that other items can also be sterilized in it, such as my breast pump and it`s accessories. Overall I feel that the Essentials Gift Set is an excellent value. It gives the basic tools for starting bottle feeding and maintaining bottle feeding in a sanitary manner. I would not hesitate to purchase this for new parents who will be utilizing bottles in feeding their new babies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MistiR Very nice product
I received this product free in return for an honest review. This gift set is ideal for those parents who want to make sure their bottles and bottle nipples are sanitary without the use of abrasive cleanings (wear and tear) or chemicals. I mean, it takes 2 minutes to sterilize a bottle for your infant. 2 minutes. No more boiling of water and then waiting for everything to cool off. 2 minutes and you can trust the sterilization.
It was easy to setup and easier to use. It comes with everything you need and should be a must for parents with infants.
The set includes and what it does not elaborate from the packing:
1. One (1) microwave sterilizer
2. Two (2) 4oz Natural feeding bottles each with size 1 nipples - meaning age 0 month and onwards.
3. Two (2) 9oz Natural feeding bottles each with size 2 nipples - meaning age 1 month and onwards
4. One (1) Bottle/Nipple Brush
5. Two (2) Soothie Pacifiers for age 0-3 months
Take note everything including the cleaning brush is BPA free.

We received the Avent Natural Essentials set free to review and are very happy with it. It makes sterilizing babies bottles and pacifiers a lot easier than having to boil them on the stove. It's also nice that it comes with multiple bottles in two different sizes so it can grow with baby and not create a lot of clutter with a bunch of different bottles. Very happy with the product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by ABloom Philips Avent SCD298/01 Natural Essentials Set
I received the Philips Avent SCD298/01 Natural Essentials Set and I honestly have mixed reviews. The positives are how sleek the bottle is and appearance is nice. The negative is that when my son is drinking from the nipple, it often pushes in which caused some leaking. I like the appearance but leaking was an issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MariahK Overall, a great value
I recently received this free product for review. My daughter is almost 7 months old, and we have previously used the Avent Natural bottles. We loved the new shape of these bottles included in the starter kit. Only downfall is, the large round cap. If you unscrew the top off the bottle before removing the cap, it's almost impossible to get off. Then bottle sanitizer works well, it is just not something we have found useful for us. The bottle brush also works well, but I prefer one with a small brush to clean inside the nipples. I also prefer the bottle brush to have a suction cup or be able to stand up. Keeps it cleaner and dries out better. The pacifiers are similar to the ones given at the hospital, and my daughter likes those. Overall, it is a very cost effective starter kit with a lot of necessities for a new baby. We love every Avent product we have owned!

Rated 3 out of 5 by JeanD Nice Starter Set
I received this set as a free sample, in exchange for writing a review. Overall, I found it to be useful and a great starter kit for a newborn. I would add more bottles and nipples as necessary, so I wouldn`t be washing so often, but the bottles and nipples themselves work well.
I prefer using the dishwasher to sanitize bottles; however, if you don`t have a dishwasher, the microwave sanitizer would be amazing! I`d recommend this product to new parents looking for a nice set to start bottle-feeding. The soothing pacifiers were ok, my baby is very picky about pacifiers and prefers others, but that`s just baby`s preference. The brush was helpful for cleaning as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mindy525 Easily sanitize your bottles
I received a free sample of the Phillips Natural Essentials Set to review and both my husband and myself loved this product. We have a 5 month old at home and it made sterilizing his bottles so nice and easy. He really seemed to enjoy the nipples that grew with him once he turned 3 months. We enjoyed this product so much that it is being recommended to all my friends currently expecting.
